The first day of spring

The first day of spring

A Poem by Picture of Poetry
"

All that I see, on the first day of spring...

"

Clovers of green

poke their heads out

and see their first sight of spring.

Carpets of moss

lay out their hands

and are prepared to be trampled

as leaves of brown, red, and gold

are blown around to form a parading

circle, and dance.

All the trees are bare

and the bushes have

yet to bloom all of their flowers

of amazing colour.

Birds are popping back into their

old nests in which they had sadly left behind.

The sun is shining brighter, and

the skies are much clearer now.

The scent of snow no longer glides through the

air, chilling our every achy bone.

For now,

the smell of roses, liles, daisies, and more

other breath taking flowers

floods the air

filling nostils so much,

that I almost begin to feel sick to my stomach,
and yet at the same time,

I feel as though I have been reborn

and placed onto a land of great meaning

and beauty taht was sent to me from

the heavens above.

For this is the first day of spring

as the day slowly begins to bloom,

as the sun rises.

Wow, what vivid description! o= I particularly enjoyed "as leaves of brown, red, and gold / are blown around to form a parading / circle, and dance." Very magical.^^ I also loved the contrast in the lines "that I almost begin to feel sick to my stomach, / and yet at the same time, / I feel as though I have been reborn" Very beautiful, and interesting. Almost as if the purity of spring is SO pure that it becomes, in fact, sickening. Great job with this!
